Corinth man gets 10 years for aggravated assault


Daily Journal

CORINTH – A Corinth man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a February shooting that severely wounded the victim.

Bacarra Lamar Hill, 26, of Johns Street, admitted he shot at Andraea Stovall, 29, of Boyd Drive Apartments, as Stovall sat in his car at the intersection of Proper and Young Streets on Feb. 18. Stovall was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery for three gunshot wounds and later recovered, said Assistant District Attorney April Bostick.

Hill was sentenced in Alcorn County Circuit Court last week by Judge Jim Pounds on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The sentences are 20 years in prison, with 10 years suspended and 10 to serve, with five years of probation, and a $1,000 fine.

Restitution will be added within 30 days based on Stovall’s medical bills. A 10-year sentence on the firearm possession charge was suspended, but is consecutive to the assault sentence.
